About Us

University Lutheran Church (ULC) is a campus ministry of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) to the University of Texas at Austin. College students struggle with stress, pressure and expectations in the academic world.  Students are also imperfect, broken sinners and need the life-giving gifts of Jesus Christ.

ULC is a sanctuary where students can find relief from the world, gather with others to hear the Good News of Jesus and receive the forgiveness of their sins. In God’s Word and the Sacraments, ULC offers comfort in the life-giving gifts of God.

College is tough.  You need Jesus.  ULC can help.

ULC also has an International Student Ministry, which aids international  students in adapting to the English Language and American culture. This ministry offers English conversation classes, and Bible studies in easy English.

Our worship services are centered on what Jesus Christ has done and continues to do for us. For those properly instructed, Communion is also served. All are welcome, regardless of religious beliefs and affiliation, to come and hear this great message.  

Worship is at 5 p.m Sunday evenings, followed by a meal and fellowship!  ULC is in the ION apartments building, 2100 San Antonio, on the corner of San Antonio and 21st Street. We’re in Suite 110. Our entrance faces 21st Street.    Street parking is free on Sundays, but we have spots available in our parking garage.   Contact Pastor Richard for more info.
